affordable health insurance
We change our health insurance when my husband quit his job two years ago and start his own law firm. I was surprised to find out how difficult it seemed to find affordable health insurance. The difficulty arose from our effort to match the coverage provided by my husband’s former employer. We realized that our former health insurance was good, but we did not fully appreciate how much it would cost on the open market without employer discounts. In light of our time in the market, we paid a lot of attention to the controversy surrounding the Supreme Court’s review of the Obama administration’s health care legislation. I now appreciate the importance of the law in ways that I did not before. Obviously, the provision about pre-existing conditions is important, but there are other aspect relating to the expansion of Medicare eligibility that are similarly important.
